Newton County Queries

You can view past
Newton County Queries here. Because a query system is available from Rootsweb Newton County Mail List, and Family Tree Maker's GenForum, you should subscribe to those services as this site will no longer update queries. This will help to centralize queries so you do not have to go to so many different query sites.  See below for links to these systems.


You can join the Newton County Mail List on Rootsweb. This is a discussion group with Newton County as the topic and any related questions.

Newton County Look Up Volunteers

When asking a volunteer for information, please be very specific and do NOT ask for any information the volunteer has not listed as available. Do NOT ask for whole family information. Give the name of the person you are looking for, what it is you are looking for such as a marriage record or a cemetery listing, and give a date or time period. This will help the volunteer greatly. Thank you.
